The bipartisan, 11-member Commission was created by Congress to develop recommendations on ways to increase participation in military, national, and public service by all Americans and on the military selective service process. Over the course of the next two years, the Commission will be reaching out and listening to the American public. The Commission hopes to ignite a national conversation about the importance of service as it develops recommendations for Congress, the President, and the American people by March 2020.

 

During its visit to Nashua, N.H., the Commission will hear from government, nonprofit, and civic leaders. The visit will highlight Nashua’s initiatives and programs that engage citizens in serving and meeting the needs of their communities.

 

The Commission invites the public to share their thoughts and ideas on its website www.inspire2serve.gov or via its request for comments published in the Federal Register.
